Default Re: Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

Uninstalled... gave it to my brother.

game ran excellent though. no crashes, smooth as glass at max settings, etc.

There is just too much arcadey-ness to it. I understand that it's meant to be more of an arcade racer but when I fight my ass off over half the course for the lead and see 2 cars that were fighting for 1st and 2nd place crash then flipping and landing upside down only for them to be ON MY BUMPER LITERALLY 7 seconds later?!?!

Hysterically bad car physics aside, if I fight for the lead and take it, I shouldn't have to worry about having to defend it from guys who I just saw eliminate themselves from the race entirely.

What makes me even MORE mad though like rubbing salt in the wound is that the ONE time I screw up those bastards disappear over the horizon never to be seen again. no chance to catch them.

Back to Shift for me.
